you are going to need a little more info than that your post is a little vague and not many of us are mind readers

The simple answer is "depends" because it really does. There are lots of things it could contain. Won't be anything active though.

Dirt. Cobwebs. Spiders. Insects. Usually no rodents, but it does happen.





Keep calm, and carry on posting.

There is about a 99% chance of it being a simple pit that contains green ducting. Beyond that anything else is a guess.

Thanks Guys was just curious as there is a few of them around Clyde.  Thought they might of been cabinets but wasn't sure. Just trying to track down the other cabinet in Clyde to see how far away from it I am.

This might be of use to you. The marked blue locations are cabinets while the red one is an exchange.

Only a couple have 'active' equipment in them.   A, B & C are none 'active' connection point, so are feed from the Exchange. 

 

BTW knowing how far another cabinet is from you, compared to the one your connected to, doesn't mean you can have your connection moved too it as the street cabling is hard wired from which ever cabinet its connected to.

Awesome thanks for the info much appreciated. laughing

 

I'm at the top Hartley road and my house was built in the 50's so i assume I'm connected to the exchange. Going by the chorus map i can get vdsl. 

 

I have naked adsl at the moment and am going to run a cat 6 cable from the utp this weekend to see i can can get a better connection.

General info: The network on the southern side of Hartley ( Closest to Sunderland) is connected to the the exchange via the A cabinet  - no network on the northern side - Aerials from the southern side.

 

The manhole/s on Hartley are over a minor multi-way ductline with large pair count cables and fibre feeding from the exchange out to the cabinets.
